    If I could, I would pull the broadcasting license of every media outlet that makes up news.

    From the link:


    " "CORRECTION: We’ve taken down video that aired on “World News Tonight" Sunday and “Good Morning America” this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy," the network tweeted. "ABC News regrets the error."



    Nice weasel words; no outright denial.

    There is no way they didn't know what they were doing. They got caught pushing fake news once again.

    When you're running a propaganda operation, truth takes a back seat to audience impact.

    This has to be a joke. Sadly it's probably not.

    In their defense, we have always referred to them as news stories, then we have the audacity to be pissed when we find out these stories are fiction...

    The same ABC that created an edited version of the Zimmerman 911 call that made the situation appear very different? Not surprised.

    They make their living off the evening news, just give them something, something they can use. People love it when you lose, they love dirty laundry.

    You're right... The comments are pretty good and biting. :supergrin:

    "Syria, Kentucky... What's the difference?" :rofl:

    This was such a bad con, I'm a bit surprised that ABC went ahead with it.

    Next, they'll be taking old 1930s footage of the Nazis storming through Czechoslovakia and Poland, and the ABC talking head will be saying those are scenes of the Turks running roughshod over the Kurds... :rofl: :rofl:

    Seriously, if you haven't done so already, CUT the cable. You wallet will thank me. and then you can discover the many options to watch what you want WHEN you want. Or you might not watch at all and actually go outside and see someone or do something.
